Spirited attendees of Fanime 2003 enjoyed a wealth of major events and activities throughout the weekend.  Many of the most interesting aspects could be found at various times and places according to the weekend schedule.  Video rooms showed the latest releases from the anime industry.  Merchandising had a wide selection of shirts and paraphernalia to sell to show your Fanime Con spirit.  Art Show found a load of excited artists ready to show off their masterpieces.  Game tournaments are never scarce and neither were the lines for the DDR machine in the Video Game Arcade room.  And for those who needed a quick break from Japan, they could stop by the Hong Kong Cinema Experience room and watch a host of dramas, martial arts, cop shows, romantic comedies, and action-adventures.

Fanime Con 2003
Convention Extras

Information Desk: Can't find out where the Dealers Hall is?  Where is Video Room 4 and what are they showing in there?  Where're the Autograph Sessions being held?  Nearest place to eat outside of the hotel?  The very helpful Information Desk was able to answer these and much more.

Hall Entertainment: Ramen and Rice displayed their masterful skills of violin and cello accompaniment for the hall masses.  A delightful addition to any anime convention, especially for the crowds of new fans who want a glimpse into what makes going to a con so much fun.

Additional Video Programming:

Old School Classics (pre-1990): Mazinger Z, Urusei Yatsura, and much more from the old skool of anime fandom!

Kid's Programming: A special kids programming block was open to all kids with staff-picked selections very appropriate for their healthy young lives!
